Spectacular Snow

Wow, two BIG snowstorms in less than a week - how lucky could we sibes get!!!  Last week we had 13.5 inches of beautiful white stuff - cotton candy to us!!!  Then overnight we got hit again.  They are saying about 8-9 inches but it is very heavy and got very compacted as it fell, so it doesn't look like as much.  There are lots of trees down and power outages in our area. So far we have been fine although a few of our neighbors' trees have broken branches.  AND we might get another couple of inches tonight.  We are totally in dog heaven.  Ciara is the pack snow bunny with a close second from Lightning. The two of them have been outside just about all day with a couple of 15 minute breaks when the Momster makes them come inside.  Thunder likes the snow too, but he comes inside more frequently.  And Phantom, well, he really does like the snow, but his body isn't tolerating it very well, so he only gets/wants to go out when necessary.

Heavy on snow, and heavy on photos.  We will keep our words to a minimum and let you enjoy our fun along with us.

First up, some shots from the storm last Thursday.

 I am very glad the Momster cleared a path across the deck for me.

Are you sure I have to go down the steps - can't I just use the deck?

Mom had to keep clearing the path or else she wouldn't have been able to open the door to let us out.  This was no mean feat given that she is once again nursing an injury to her left paw.

We think some bunny came through here last night. 

No, I am not in jail.  I am just hiding behind the last piece of that silly fence Mom put up.  She wants me to come in, but I am very happy right here. 

Loving it out here. 

A brief timeout.

Our fun playground. 

Thanks, Mom - we love playing up here.


My idea of the pawfect bed.

I beg to disagree.

Waging war to be King of the Mountain.


I dare you, Lightning, to knock me off.

How was that, Thunder? 

We are the best of buds, we can share the mountain.

And now for some shots from today:


 Looking out from the front door.

And from the deck in the back.


A brief timeout.

Life is so sweet!

Gotta love that happy smile! 

I think I just caught a snowflake!

Mom's handsome boy!

We forgot to put on our sungoggles!

Don't you know you are supposed to let sleeping dogs lie!!!

We hope you enjoyed our photoshow.

Me too, but it is time for me to get in a comfy snooze.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Phantom, sorry you aren't enjoying this blissful snow as much as everyone else.

I got in trouble today for jumping the back fence so back out on my lead for awhile....bummer.

KB said...

You LUCKY sibes! I love seeing all of your smiles and happiness. And, I adore seeing Phantom's big blue eyes.

I hope that your mom's paw is better soon. She and I have something in common - I have splints on both wrists... We have tons of snow but no shoveling for me.

GOOSE said...

I'll say you are in dog heaven. I loved every single photo!! I felt like I was rg=ight there with you all. I am sure you will have many more days of fun in the snow a head. Woooo Hoooo.

Jo's World said...

Wow! That is some snow storm you had . . .I am laughing at Ciara, she looks like she might spend t he night out there. Is she gonna be a redder redhead?
Even good to see our pal Phantom laying out in it. Looks like everybody had a good time in it except, maybe, the Momster? Your wrist hurting again? Hope all is well with you. love and hugs, Jo

I am so glad to see you enjoying the snow! We haven't been able to enjoy it as much as we'd like because Mom keeps spending time at the hospital. I am hoping we get to go out and have more adventures in the snow soon before it's all gone!

Fenris and Family said...

We agree with Phantom a nice warm bed inside is the best.

We thinks we would rather have your snow then our rain. We just has mud puddles and soggy ground here.

Anonymous said...

I'm so happy you finally got your snow and plenty of it!
Your pictures made my day today!

Cocoa and Melon said...

Oh boy oh boy! That looks exciting! I, Cocoa have never seen snow, but I don't think I would like it, since it blocks access to the tasty grass. Great shots here though, and I love the one of Ciara and Lightning resting in front of the fence. And is it just me or does Lightning still have that puppy look?

That snow looks like fab fun!

Mary Ann said...

YD, sometimes with ♥June and ♥Angel Samantha said...

Wow snow dogs!!! I am so happy for woos!


NanaNor's said...

Hi, I thought we got alot of snow here in Colorado but it looks like nothing compared to what you got. I love seeing you all in the snow-Hunter loves the snow, loves to roll in it, roll his head in it, eat it. I wondered if there was something like a stick that he could have eaten that made him sick. Hope you have a wonderful afternoon. Lots of licks, Hunter & Noreen

Misaki @ misadventuresofMisaki said...

Can't believe how much lovely snow you had! Looks heavenly! Wish I was there playing with you guys :-)

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Lots of happy snow puppy shots and it sure looks like you are having fun but we're with Phantom...watch out of the window while lying someplace cozy with a pillow tucked under your head.

sagechronicles said...

They look like they were in doggy heaven! I remember those big snow dumps from when we lived in Colorado. Our dogs loved playing in it too.

What Remains Now said...

This is the best post ever. You all look so HAPPY!
